    Influenza is a respiratory disease transmitted through droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes or via fomites. Globally, seasonal influenza is estimated to cause approximately one billion cases, three […]

  • The Smell of Fear

    The Smell of Fear

    We know that plants and animals communicate via smell, but if and how humans communicate non-verbally via small molecules in the air, remains enigmatic. Can we “smell” the feelings of […]

  • Artificial Intelligence and Freshwater Modelling

    To protect our freshwater for future generations, we develop a framework enabling an understanding of how environmental factors impact our water quality and how mitigation strategies can help. Our project […]
